Friendly Desires: A Different Imprint Story
A beautiful and rich girl moves to La Push, but what happens when Seth Clearwater imprints on her? Love right away? Or not?
A huge wolf stood in front of me, his fur was sandy colored. I felt a sudden pull towards it.
I wanted to reach out and touch it.
I went closer, close enough that we stood at normal human distance, adrenaline pulsed through me.
I moved my hand through the soft fur and stared into the light brown eyes, suddenly too intelligent for a beast.
I was lost, I felt elated.
Chapter 1: Talk time.
I sat staring out of the window from my room of our New York apartment, the view was simply beautiful, though it was busy and happening I found some peace looking down on the moving city. The apartment where I stayed was huge, dad was an advertising executive, he had his own company which took up products and advertise them in various ways. This was a rich business and dad of course made millions of money in this way, most of the time they hired actors to do a particular add, I had their autographs. It was a traveling job; dad had to travel all around the world, and it was kinda good for both of us. For him because it was his business and he loved doing it and for me because I got to meet actors and also travel around the world with him during vacation. Speaking of vacation, wonder where we will be going this time, my exams were almost over, I had one more left, tomorrow it will all be over and I will turn into a sophomore from a freshman. I sighed; we also had to stay in school after the exams, as my school was taking up an environment program so the principal wanted to enlighten us on saving our environment. I was very much enthusiastic about it; I badly wanted to save our environment. And later our group would be going to party, the same usual stuff. I sighed again.
“There’s lots of sighing going on huh?” I heard a voice, it was Antony of course.
Antony, well he is my care-taker, actually more than that and almost everything, he has been with me and dad since I was 5. We used to stay in Italy when he joined us. Dad had been to Italy to do a particular project, there he met mom, yeah my mom’s an Italian, and they immediately fell in love and got married. They decided to stay in Italy for a while, and then I was born. Everything had been going well till I was 3 or 4 and then the usual bickering turned into huge fights, they didn’t want me to be subjected to their fights so they hired a ‘nanny’ for me. Not just a usual nanny, dad wanted some one really capable who could take care of me in every way, so he contacted an American agency and they sent Antony to us. I m glad dad didn’t want a usual nannies, Antony is the best! Then things became worse and they, that is my mom and dad had to separate, it was harsh for me, I loved my mom and wanted her to be with me, but no she left us, she didn’t even care for my feelings. Since then Antony is with us. He is always with me; dad usually has to go away for business trips but Antony never. He is my best friend, cook, body guard, and my family. I love him.
“Yeah, it’s the last day of school.” I said looking at him.
“You didn’t study for the exam right?” he teased me.
“Antony, its Art tomorrow, and you know I m pro at that,” I laughed.
“Ah! Be modest!” he teased again.
“By the way, don’t you know you should knock before entering someone’s room?” I teased him back.
“I keep forgetting ma’am,” he said with a sarcastic smile.
“Manner’s are very important mister!” I pretended to scold him.
“Yeah sure, dinner’s ready come-on.” He laughed and went out.
“Okay,” I said and went over to my washroom and washed my face with cold water. I changed into sweatpants and a tank top and went over to the dining table.
I went over and sat on my chair, and Antony joined me.
“Where’s dad?” I asked while serving myself dinner.
“It seems he will be late tonight, Miss Wills left a message.” He replied.
“Oh, okay.” I said. Miss Wills was dad’s secretary. She had been with dad for ten years.
“Yummy noodles,” I commented.
“Thanks, I m good at everything you see.” He said.
“Now look who is not being modest!” I raised my eye brows.
“Okay, okay.” He said and then we continued to have dinner in silence.
After finishing the dinner, I put my plate in the sink.
“Good night Tony,” I said and yawned.
“Yeah night’,” he replied with a smile.
I went over to my room and cuddled up in my bed, I checked my cell. I hadn’t got any messages or calls so I set an alarm and closed my eyes thinking about next day. Soon, I fell asleep.
My shift had just ended.
‘Night guys,’ I thought and phased back to human form. I wore my clothes in swift moment and headed to my house, I was damn tired. Nothing was going on in La Push or the Cullens’ territory; it had been a year since the fight against the Volturi had taken place for Nessie. To keep the college charade the Cullens had left for New Hampshire after one month, and Jacob had left with them. Though he joined us in wolf form it was never the same, he had made Leah his beta. And now they were returning at last! Their college year had ended, to meet Charlie and us.
I entered my house, it was dark. Probably mom and Leah were already in bed. I grabbed my self a snack and headed to my room. I went and lay on my bed. I didn’t feel sleepy any more! Come-on, I should! I m damn tired, I need to sleep. I just kept tossing and turning, I got irritated and got of the bed, climbed through the window and sat on the roof staring at the moon. I felt very lonely, everyone had an imprint and they were damn happy, everyone but Leah and I. A year had passed and I had seen many new girls in school but I never imprinted on them, Leah had gotten past her self, being a beta and away from Sam and his mind had made her better. Better not back to her old self. I had started to question myself, were Leah and I genetic end? Was that the reason we hadn’t imprinted? Ugh! The guys had also asked me to start dating some one and there were many girls who wanted me, being a wolf had made me handsome and wanted. But I didn’t want anyone except ‘her’. Then I sat staring at the moon blankly, not wanting to allow negative thought rule over me. Minutes passed…
I yawned once and then twice and then thrice.
“Time to go to bed Seth,” I said to myself and headed back inside.
As soon my head hit the bed, my eyes closed and I was drawn into deep sleep. That night, I dreamed of ‘her’. I had never seen her before. She was more than beautiful, her eyes were dark brown, her brown hair was long and shiny and her lips were shaped into a smile. She came over to me and moved her hand across my face, my breathing increased. Her soft lips touched my cheek, I moved my hand to hold her, but suddenly I was all alone. She had vanished my sight, reach and touch. Everything went blank and the dream changed into nothingness.
Chapter 1: Talktime
I dont know why I have a soft corner for Daniel!
Originally I had wanted him just in the chapter four, where he and Nicole just have a fling and later when she and Seth get together it would be hard for her to admit to Seth...but then the story didnt go that way...not at all.
i finally caught up! I've been away for a while but im back! :)
Still loving this ff! :D
Chapter 33: Love me or Love me not
You are hurting me. And you don’t even know it.
I love you. And you don’t even know it.
I deserved to be thrashed! To be hit a million times! To be stabbed again and again! I deserved more than that. I had committed the biggest crime! Oh god! I felt so horrible…I would have jumped over this cliff if and only I would die.
The sky was beginning to lighten, bright colours played with each other as the mixed, and I stood feeling the exact opposite, letting the wind wash me as if to clean my act. I still couldn’t believe I had almost slept with a stranger! God! I couldn’t even phase because I was scared I would start thinking about it, and everyone would despise me and be horrified at what I had done. I wanted to phase badly and yet I couldn’t. I wanted to run through the trees till my anger reduced if not dissipated.
“UGH!” I punched the rocks breaking them into pieces and continued punching till my skin cut and blood joined the powder.
“Stop,” I murmured. I shouldn’t be doing this…right? I couldn’t remember why.
I would never drink again! It made me forget myself…it made me weak…it made me loose my mind completely.
“Shush, it’s alright…don’t think,” she whispered in my ear as she continued kissing my neck, her hands on my waist.
“You have nice abs,” she sighed.
Okay, I wanted to listen to her…not think, just feel her on me…move with her. But I couldn’t, with every kiss and touch I was growing more alert.
How could I do this?! This was hurting me so much…I had ignored her and now I hated myself for doing it. Hated…despised!
I closed my eyes, trying to calm down…that’s when I remembered her. I remembered. She didn’t like me, she didn’t know the love I felt for her. She didn’t know anything, and I had no right to even try to forget my imprint when I hadn’t even tried to get her. I had done nothing! Nothing to show her that I loved her. I was hers but she didn’t know. Yet.
“Stop!” I pushed her off me not caring whether I hurt her or not.
I wish I could tear my skin…be reborn. I wanted to get rid of her touch…I only wanted Nicole to be the one. Forever. I realised I was sobbing, crying hard. Thick tears fell on the ground and mixed with my blood. My hand was already starting to heal.
Without answering her questions I had grabbed my shirt from the floor and hurried out of the room. The alcohol was gone from my body. I could think straight. I could think of what I had done…what I was about to do.
Why was it so hard? Why was it so painful? Why couldn’t Nicole just fall in love with me? I just wanted to run away from everyone…but I still wanted to be close to her. I felt so empty, like a part of me was missing. No, not just a part. My whole…my soul was gone, I just couldn’t live. I needed to see her…feel her…be hers.
Heather and I were in my closet, going through my clothes trying to pick the best one.
“Okay, it shouldn’t be too revealing, it should make you look cute and sexy at the same time,” Heather muttered.
“Let’s just choose something! He is going to be here any minute!” I exclaimed. I was panicking now…seriously. I was still in my bathrobe and Daniel would be here within thirty minutes!
“Okay, how about this?” she asked holding my denim skirt and a purple sleeveless satin top.
“Hmm,” I snatched and started putting them on. She selected a pair of ankle boots.
“And we wasted an hour to select this?” I asked and she rolled her eyes.
“But this looks so plain!” I complained.
“Relax, you look classy! Pretty!” she said in a calming voice.
“No I don’t!” I groaned.
“Come-on, after your make up and hair, you will be fine!” she exclaimed.
“Okay, you’re right,” I grinned at her after everything was done. My hair was in its usual layered look, and light make-up sort of added a glow to my face.
“I always am,” she punched me playfully. Sighing I stared at myself in the mirror. I looked like someone who would probably flutter a guy’s heart. Hopefully Daniel’s does.
“You look beautiful,” Daniel smiled at me.
“You look nice as well,” I said.
“Thanks,” he said huskily.
“So where are we heading?” I asked.
“Umm…I want to be alone with you for a while,” he said not quite answering my question.
“Alright, where are we going?” I asked curiously.
“It’s a small café, I love hanging out there…its special to me,” he said softly.
“Okay,” I blushed.
“Right,” he smiled. We reached the café soon; it was a cute little cosy place. After we got out of the car Daniel stood by my side with his arm around my shoulder. The café was not too full, just one other customer sat close to the entrance and two waiters stood behind the counter.
“So you like it?” he asked moving close to me.
“Of course, it’s so cute!” I grinned.
“Great,” okay…very close now; I swallowed trying to breath without gasping. His blue eyes were so calming, made me forget everything. Bending down and lifting up my chin his lips touched mine and the butterflies in my stomach danced joyfully making me shiver and it had nothing to do with cold.
“I missed this,” he whispered against my lips. I was trembling too much to respond, but I had missed it too…a lot!
“Ahem,” someone coughed. Daniel’s grip tightened but not in an uncomfortable way. “Ahem” again.
“Maybe we should order first,” I mumbled.
“Yeah,” he sounded irritated. The waiter looked at us with a cocky smile. “What would you like?” he asked me with a twinkle in his eye.
I stared at the menu…”um, I will take cold coffee and whipped cream,” I said louder.
“And you Dan?” he asked clearly trying not to laugh.
“And I will take the usual Michael,” Daniel replied tight lipped.
“Sure, I will be right back,” he smiled widely.
“Take your time,” Daniel smiled a little.
“Sure,” he walked away chuckling.
“You know him?” I asked.
“Yeah…I come here most of the time,” he said indifferently.
“Ok-” and his lips were on mine again. “Maybe…we….sh…should do this…later?” I managed to say between the kissing. I was feeling embarrassed.
“Later too,” he whispered and continued. Giggling I didn’t argue.
We finally broke apart at Michael’s announcement, “here are your drinks lovebirds.”
“Thank you,” I blushed.
“Alright, go away now,” Daniel chuckled his mood improved highly.
“Someone’s very happy now,” I laughed.
“Yeah, I like kissing my girlfriend,” he chuckled and winked.
“Yeah yeah,” I rolled my eyes blushing again.
“Umm…this is yum!” I loved it. Best cold coffee with whipped cream. Nothing too grand but so out the world.
“I know,” Daniel agreed.
We sat in the café talking. Yes, no kissing again. He told me everything…everything that we hadn’t spoken on the phone.
“You have to come to New York for college,” he looked so cute.
“I m going to, I miss this place too much,” I agreed ignoring the sadness I felt.
“Cool, that will be so great,” he nodded.
“Come-on, let’s get out of here,” he got up after a while throwing some bills on the table.
“Bye Mike,” he called as we headed.
“Bye…come back soon…I like a show,” Michael said cheekily.
“I m going to pretend that I m not embarrassed,” I poked him playfully.
“Its okay baby,” he laughed.
“No car?” I asked as he led me away from the car.
“Yeah, it’s just half a mile from here,” he shrugged.
“Okay…ooh! I missed the sun and the breeze!” I took a deep breath. La Push was too moist for my taste.
“Yeah, I like your dressing,” he chuckled.
“Shut up and walk,” I giggled.
We stopped at central park; many were walking to and fro with work bags and others just lying on the grass. Kids running around and old people huddled close talking. You could find every type of person here. And many were in boats on water-rowing and paddling. I looked at Daniel my eyes shining with joy.
“You know what?! I haven’t been here since months!” I told him.
“Let’s have some fun,” he smiled sweetly. Standing on my tips I kissed his lips. Just one peck.
“Thank you,” I hugged him.
“Anytime,” he laughed.
We walked for a while holding hands, “you know, I first learnt how to ride a bike here,” I told him.
“Me too,” he was me like he was watching a child. So amused.
“Ice cream!” I screamed acting just like a kid.
We each brought a tri-cone, mine butterscotch and his chocolate with chips.
“I don’t feel like eating ice creams in La Push…and now all I want to eat is something cold!” I complained.
“I really don’t know what to say,” he laughed.
“I miss everything so much! It almost makes me not want to go back,” I told him.
“Don’t go then,” all the joking mood gone, his eyes were sad.
“You know I can’t do that,” I pouted.
“Don’t…” he muttered.
“I m sorry,” I whispered.
“Let’s not think about leaving now? Okay?” he smiled crinkly.
“Yeah,” I can do that.
“Um, Nicole?” he stared at me.
“You have got ice cream all over your lips and nose,” he laughed.
“No way!” I started licking the ice cream off my lips and wiping my chin.
“Want me to remove it?” he asked his voice playful. His index finger rubbed my nose gently wiping the cream.
“No thanks,” I replied. I didn’t want him to be kissing me right now, not when around hundred people were close my and we had ice creams in our hands.
“Let’s go?” he asked after we finished our ice creams.
“Sure,” I smiled.
We headed downward, where all the boats were kept, “we are rowing?” I asked surprised.
“Yeah, we are!” he squeezed my hand.
“I love you Daniel,” I giggled.
“And I love you,” he chuckled.
We were soon on the water, Daniel rowing of course and stopped at a desolate corner.
“This is so beautiful!” I exclaimed.
“Not more than you,” he smiled.
“This is the best date ever,” I told him as I sat close to him.
“Yeah?” he asked playfully.
“Mm-hmm,” I said with pretended innocence.
He leant in closer again and I ducked, and stood up laughing at his expression. All of this reminded me of the first time he and I had been alone.
“You know, playing around a huge room, is okay but playing around in a little boat is a bit risky don’t you think?” he asked, eyes twinkling with delight thinking the same as me.
“No,” I dragged the word. “It’s not at all risky,” I giggled.
“We could fall in the water, get wet…” he said turning toward me.
“Yeah right,” I rolled my eyes. No way was he going to turn over the boat.
“Oops!” he fumbled the boat. Okay, I m not a huge fan of getting wet now.
“Daniel!” my eyes widened.
“Sorry that was a genuine mistake,” his said playing still.
“If I get wet, trust me I m going to kill you,” I threatened him even though I couldn’t get the grin off my face.
“That will also be a great pleasure,” he winked.
My balance on boats wasn’t the best as it was on land, “No…no…” and suddenly I fell, but thankfully not in water.
“Ow!” I groaned.
“I thought you were joking, are you okay?” Daniel had pulled me from the edge and lay on top of me.
“You thought wrong,” I pouted and opened my eyes finding myself looking into his concerned eyes.
“Are we going to just lay here?” I asked a smile playing along my lips.
“I don’t mind,” he was smiling again seeing that I wasn’t hurt.
I settled myself in a comfortable position; he just continued to stare at me. “What? Feeling shy?” I teased.
“Yeah, just a little,” I couldn’t see him anymore, just feel his warm sculpted body on mine.
His arm was still around my waist, the other arm moved from my shoulders, down the arm leaving goose bumps and holding me in the cage of his arms. I tilted my head as his lips traced my chin…cheek…earlobe and down to my neck. He stayed there for quite a long while pressing his lips gently sucking. And then he traced the same path back to my lips. I locked my arms around his neck; he wasn’t the only one who knew how to play. My fingers then locked in his hair pulling him close and my leg wrapped around his. Our lips moved together, and suddenly he pulled away gasping for air.
“Careful,” he mumbled and his lips were back on mine. I didn’t know if that word was for me or him, but neither of us paid attention to it. Instead our lips met with eagerness and it just grew more intense with every second.
We were walking back to the car now; both of us had tried to groom ourselves a bit. Neither of us had spoken a word after. With Daniel’s arm around my shoulders we walked back.
“That was something,” Daniel laughed one short laugh once we were in the car.
“Yeah,” I was still recovering. Lying there for god knows how many minutes had left me blushing and my trembling. My heart was still trying to jump out of my chest.
Before starting he gave me a peck on my cheek. “Lunch?” he asked.
“No, I m not hungry.” I said shyly.
“Sure?” he asked.
“Yeah, you?” I asked.
“Yeah, I m not too,” he tucked my hair behind my ear.
“Okay, we will just head back then,” he said. I nodded. During that intense make out session he had informed me about a party in the evening, one of his college mates was holding it in his penthouse, and he wanted to introduce me to his friends. And I had agreed then, and now was sort of freaking out. I didn’t even know those people.
On the way back, we listened to music and I continued to think of the party with obvious nervousness.
“I will pick you up at five?” he said stopping the car in front of my apartment building.
“Sure…” I nodded feeling nervous.
“Um, Nicole?” he pulled my top closer to my neck.
“What are you doing?” I asked surprised.
“You might want to cover your neck a bit,” he bit his lip.
“Why?” I asked.
“Uh-I was a little…passionate, so,” he pursed his lips.
“Okay,” I laughed lightly blushing.
“Right, I will see you then,” he bent and kissed me on the lips.
“Bye.” I got out of the car.
I walked up with a huge smile, and walked up to the lift.
“Miss Nicole! You’re back!” Henry greeted me smiling.
“Yeah I m,” I smiled warmly. Henry hadn’t been around the previous day.
“Had fun today?” he inquired.
“Oh yes, one of the best days,” I told him.
“Mine too,” he laughed.
“Okay Henry, I will see you later.” “Sure miss,” he replied.
I walked out of the lift feeling elated. How stupid I had been a few days before doubting that Daniel was the right guy for me. Of course he was the one…he loved me and I loved him and I would soon be back in New York and we wouldn’t have to stay away from each other. Things would be perfect soon. Yeah…I loved him, crazily.
